    believe it is the patent infringement version,
    prior to lawsuit and settlement.

    yes i think if you buy the 20" and then buy a krieger 24" ar10 bbl
    you would have a very nice rifle.

    this is what it will look like after the salt bath nitrating.
    40 rounds thru it, shooting right at .66 at 200 yds.
    ( the ammo spec is 4.5 for 300 and 7" at 600)

    I own a beautiful Remington M24 r sniper rifle would love to talk with more owners. Also if anyone owns or has an extra day optic case that they'd like to sell I'm very interested in one.

    Take a picture and start a thread. Lots of Remington precision shooting and sniper fans here.

    The subject of "Sniper Rifles" always seems to evoke a mixture of emotions and highly opinionated thoughts.... So, here are mine. A sniper rifle needs to fit the shooter, the situation, and the setting, ie, the terrain. There is no one perfect rifle, for any call out, or battle zone. A sniper needs a variety of options, just like you have tools in the tool box. Yes, some tools are adjustable for several different applications, but not perfect for all. I hear bolt guns only, by the purist, but then for the guys that are down range, give them a auto loader any day. I am no "expert" in the field, and barely a novice, but I have learned that depending on the call, a compact auto loader is the ticket. Easier to fit in a urban hide, can be utilized as a entry weapon etc.. But out in the mountains, an 18-24" barreled bolt "seems" to be the choice, in a magnum caliber. I have carried all the rifles pictured, and shot some in competitions too. The EBR is a 16" Sage stocked heavy chunk of metal. Accuracy? Mediocre. Cool? Yeah, heck yeah, but that does not save lives when the cold bore is off. It absorbs heat as bad as it does cold. Wet fingers, cold day, yeah, you freeze to it! The DPMS LAR with a 18" Proof Research barrel, same temperature issues, but oh my, I would take this into the zombie hordes, and walk away with a smile. The Savage BVSS? cold bore through a casing at 100. Dang, but its heavy, long and unwieldy! The 18" .223 Wylde MK 12 type clone, pack it all week, with twice the ammo, and still drill neat little holes. The M14 clone, just fun to shoot, and reaches out better than the EBR. So you don't take a Barrett in .50 to deal with a hostage, but it is nice to have one when the bad guy is a distance out, barricaded etc.. like the .338 or .300 Win. No perfect pill pushers, but they all have their place. Just have plenty of appropriate tools for the job at hand.

    an update
    the original load, which i was working with uses h1000 powder.
    this is because mil ammo has to be american powder..in case of war.
    since i do not have that limitation, and was having hard bolt lift trying to
    match their data, i decided to try some reloader. as luck would have it
    reloader 26 had hit the market and i was able to find a one pounder.

    gentlemen this stuff is AMAZING!
    i can do an honest 3047 fps with a 220 sie mk from a 26.5" bbl !
    i have backed off to an even 3000 fps and shooting just over .3 at 100 yards.
    i still have no long range shooting yet. my first match is the middle of next month.
